What is Cranial Osteopathy?
Cranial osteopathy is a branch of osteopathy that is very subtle and aims to relieve the fascial tensions throughout the body, including the head. It is a technique that complements structural osteopathy for a wide range of problems in adults such as migraines/headaches; jaw dysfunction; whiplash; ME; recurrent infections; sinus problems and can even be effective in helping the body cope with suppressed immune systems (eg during chemotherapy).
In babies this technique is effective for reducing the ‘moulding’ effect on the baby’s head during labour. Symptoms often present as increased crying, colic, sleeping and feeding difficulties.
In older children cranial osteopathy helps those who have recurrent ear infections; asthma; sinus and dental problems; headaches and growing pains.
